A very warm welcome to the chair for Semiconductor Nanostructures and Quantum Systems (SNQS)
at the Walter Schottky Institute of the Technical University of Munich.
Our primary research interests focus on understanding key-fundamental processes occurring in
semiconductor-based nanomaterials and heterointerfaces and the application of novel interfaces and
quantum systems in the fields of photonics, (opto)electronics, quantum technologies and energy science.
Researchers at SNQS currently explore a wide-range of research themes in condensed matter physics, including
Growth and Functional Properties of Ultrapure Nanomaterials: III-V semiconductor nanostructures (nanowires, QD-nanostructures),
2D-nanomaterials and diamond grown using methods such as MBE and CVD.
Heterostructures of 2D-Materials: two-dimensional materials such as graphene, transition metal
dichalcogenides and layered perovskites and the exploration of their novel optical, electronic and magnetic properties.
Quantum-Photonics*: quantum spin-systems in III-V semiconductors and diamond and their use for
Photonic Nanomaterials*: understanding and controlling light-matter-interactions by engineering
materials to trap, route and focus light at the nanoscale.
Quantum Sensing: development of quantum sensors with a particular focus on applications in the
life-sciences and ultra-sensitive photon detection at the quantum limit.
